    How Can I Find My Activation Key?

    I removed my Windows Vista from my notebook (Acer Aspire 5610) and install
    Windows XP.
    Now i want to install Windows Vista again but i can't find my activation key.
    Activation key is not written on my Windows Vista box.
    So where can i find the activation key?

    Most computer manufacturers put the Vista key on the computer on a sticker.
    You may also find it in the documentation that came with your computer.
